California Court of Appeal

Nickerson v. Stonebridge Life Ins. Co., 234271

In a suit brought by a disabled veteran alleging his life insurer breached the insurance contract by failing to pay him benefits for the full 109 days of his hospital stay and that the insurer breached the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing by acting unreasonably and in bad faith in denying him the full policy benefits, the trial court's order denying the motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict is affirmed as modified, where, on remand from the Supreme Court, the award of attorney fees under Brandt v. Superior Court (1985) should be included in the compensatory damages.
